During the course of proceedings, investigation officer of the case presented his report in the court and pleaded to extend physical remand of the accused.

He stated that the police had recovered the arms used in incident but it could not recover vehicle and mobile phone used in the incident yet.

He said that police needed to further interrogate the accused, hence they should be given in physical remand.

The counsel for accused opposed the extension of physical remand and argued that police had already taken physical remand of the accused and there was no need of any more physical remand.

He pleaded the court to send both accused to adiyala jail on judicial remand.

However, the court remanded Raja Arshad in police custody for three days while sent Khokhar to prison on judicial remand.
